My favorite shoe designer, Miss Henrietta “Hetty Rose” is bringing her custom-crafted bespoke shoes to a wider audience by launching her ready-to-wear line.
This is pretty typical work outfit: Merona cardigan, black cami and black and white houndstooth skirt – all from Target.
I have a ton of basic clothes from Target. But since I’m not shopping there while they continue to support politicians who advocate against human rights, I’m going to have to branch out to other options… and cut back, which I need to do anyways.
The shoes are “Jessica” by Lilibee. I’ve had these for a while and I like that they are a neat little spin on the typical black patent mary jane. Details like the stacked wood inset on the heel, the large shiny buckles and the fun oversized cord stitching.
I am not a huge make-up person. I don’t wear a lot and I’m not good with experimentation or pushing the boundaries on color. I just don’t have the face for it. So I typically go for pretty colors and simple looks. I love mascara and a good lipstick and gloss. I have recently started trying out the L’oreal Studio Secrets primer, maybe dot on some Prescriptives custom base (which I’ve been using for 15+ years) and a dusting of translucent powder.
I don’t spend a lot on eyeshadow or powder, etc., but I do like to splurge a bit on lipstick. And my favorite is Chanel.
This time I topped the Paris with the Chanel Glossimer #197 “Gazelle”, which is a shimmery peach.
I find it challenging to buy make-up, especially lipstick. The tube never gives you a real look at the color or the feel or the application. They need to sell more mini-tubes like perfume samples so you could wear it a time or two before you commit.
I’ve received a few samples of products including toners, lotions and nail polish, as well as a few new make-up items I’ve bought. I plan on doing more reviews so keep an eye out for the Bubblegum Plastic banner.
I think it’s only fitting that I finally start posting my Fashion Week coverage (I know! I know!) with Stacy Lomman’s show – the Precious Metals collection.

Finally time for another 3 Second Fashion Show. I have been remiss, I know. But really it was because I was afraid of all of the bugs! I got mauled this summer and I can’t stand going out for even 3 seconds!
Lots of black in today’s outfit but there are glints here and there. The lace cardigan is from the Benhaz Sarafpour for Target and the skirt is Target as well. The tights are from Kushyfoot and the shoes are the Isabel Toledo for Payless oxfords.
I actually had someone tell me the shoes are cute and ugly at the same time. What do you think??? I don’t have a lot of yellow so I liked having a bit of brightness from the sole. I wanted to pair them with black today but how fun will these be with bright solid tights? I think I have a pair in that same bright yellow color.
Those will be next!
Okay, I couldn’t resist with the title. But you have to forgive me, I’ve been a bit delirious all day from being sick. Basically I worked but now I’m watching Amadeus and discovering scences I’ve never seen before. Here are a few of my favorites.
Can you imagine some of today’s designers living in this time and the work they would do? Louboutin. Manolo. Galliano. Amazing.
I especially like the red and white number in the first clip at 3:05.
What’s your favorite?
Camo, like leopard, isn’t going anywhere so these will still be current years from now. Invest if you can!
I was very good and didn’t buy any shoes while I was in New York… not that I would have had any room to pack them… but that doesn’t mean I didn’t get in my “shoe fix” while I was there.
I met up with the amazing girl behind Bergdorf’s social media and we had a great time picking out the best shoes for Fashion Week.
Check out my picks on the stylish and gorgeous Bergdorf Goodman blog – 5th/58th.
